Fried Chicken Replacing Hoagies in West Philadelphia

The void left by Lee’s Hoagie House, which closed June 12th, is being filled … by fried chicken. The fried chicken restaurant Wishbone will open at 4034 Walnut Street in the fall.

From a recent article in the Daily Pennsylvanian:

Owners and chefs Alan Segel and Dave Clouser are planning to offer a signature flavor of chicken and one special flavor that changes every week or so, as well as a variety of sauces. The chicken will be cut into white and dark meat, as well as leg, thigh and breast made into tenders.

The owners are aiming for an October opening. Donald Klipstein, who was the delivery man at Lee’s Hoagie House for 27 years, will stay on the Wishbone staff.
